I am a post-doctoral researcher in the mathematics department at MIT. Previously, I was a post-doc in the Theory Group at Microsoft Research. During the summer of 2010, I was an intern at D.E. Shaw & Co in New York City working in the convertible arbitrage group. I was a research intern with the Theory Group at Microsoft Research working with Yuval Peres in the summer of 2009. My thesis advisor in the math department at Stanford University was Amir Dembo. My research interests are in probability, in particular stochastic interface models (random surfaces and SLE), random walk, mixing times for Markov chains, and interacting particle systems.
